Roosters vs Rabbitohs Preview and Prediction

The Roosters and Rabbitohs renew the longest-standing rivalry in rugby league when they square off at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

It’s a minor miracle the Roosters are still in the top four with just two games of the regular season remaining considering their enormous casualty ward.

Indeed, the Roosters could field a team of their currently injured and suspended players and easily make the top eight, such is the quality on the sidelines.

However, they face the prospect of being chased down by Manly for that all-important fourth spot if they can’t conjure an upset of the Rabbitohs on Friday night.

The good news for the Roosters is that they’ve won six of their last seven games, but the ease of which the woeful Dragons were able to put 22 points on them last week is concerning.

Meanwhile, the Rabbitohs will be determined to bounce back from their 25-12 defeat to the Panthers last week.

Souths were the better team in the first half, but some poor discipline amid a 2-11 penalty count saw Penrith mow them down in the second stanza.

The Rabbitohs have still only lost to the Panthers and Storm this season and won their last 19 games as favourites, showcasing their dominance against teams below them on the ladder.

VERDICT:

Souths have won the last two meetings between the teams and with the Roosters missing several key players, the Bunnies look set to extend that streak here.

Clashes between these teams are traditionally low-scoring affairs, but with the Roosters conceding 20+ points to the Broncos and Dragons over the last fortnight, combined with their depleted line-up and the Rabbitohs’ lethal attack should ensure a fair few tries at Suncorp (Best Rabbitohs win & over 44.5 points odds $1.93 with Ladbrokes).

Nine of the Rabbitohs last 10 wins have also seen them cover the -12.5 line.

Adam Keighran, Nat Butcher and Dale Copley are the latest Roosters to join the casualty ward, while Siosiua Taukeiaho is also in some doubt due to concussion.
